Rescue, something that we gals are 100% behind, and lifting up rescue is our mission. I hear all the time that someone wants a certain type of dog or a puppy or that they grew up with a certain breed and they want nothing but that and that is why they HAVE to go to a breeder. Well, I am here to tell you a little secret, that is not true. There are tons and tons of rescues that are breed based. And having two rescue border collies myself, I know they feel like having a “breed” but you can have that and save a life all at the same time. One of my favorite rescues in BCSAVES, this DFW based rescues is border collie focus and they are killing it!
Border Collie Save and Rescue, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable dog rescue dedicated to helping border collies throughout Central and North Texas. Their actions revolve around rescuing, rehabbing, and re-homing border collies. This includes taking in border collies and border collie mixes who are in toxic and/or desperate situations. They place them into foster homes, where we tend to all of their medical needs, spay/neuter them, begin any needed physical and mental rehabilitation, start some basic training, and provide them with a loving & safe place to live. Finally, we place them with appropriate and vetted adopters who fully meet the needs of the individual dog.
They are taking in every border collie in Texas and beyond to make sure that these high-energy, smart, hard-working pups get the perfect home. We had the chance to go visit BCSAVES this summer in Dallas and when I say it was heaven on earth, that is an understatement. I was in pure bliss the entire time we were there. They have anywhere from 15-30 border collies at a time (not including dogs in foster care) that they are looking to place and these pups are not living in cages and crates, they are roaming acres of land with ponds, grass and even donkeys.
Below are just A FEW of the pups I would love to take in if I didn’t live in a New York City apartment with 3 dogs already… (insert eye roll)!
If you are looking for a border collie I highly recommend looking at BCSAVES! If you want to help in any way further the work of this amazing group of dog lovers please donate here or shop their Amazon wishlist here.
